Q and the Brass Boys' Songs
Our songs have often been referred to as "offbeat" and weird. But really,
it's just us having fun and not caring about what other people think. In
fact, we don't even care if we're good or not. But you don't have to take
our word for it. See for yourself, or check out our crazy

Martian King Songs
Continuing in the tradition of Q and the Brass Boys, since...we
are Q and the Brass Boys, the Martian Kings strive to maintain the
uniqueness of their own artistic voices. Wow, that thesaurus really does
wonders for bs statements. While we'll definately continue to play our
old songs, we'll also definately write new and better lyrics. These will
be the best songs ever!!! Ha ha ha, well here's what we have so far, keep
in mind that many things are 'works in progress.' But one day we'll be
big...like that guy over there --}
J Crew - Ah yes, the quintessential preppie
guide to life. I'm talking about the song and the catalog.
Heroin - Is it true? Martian Kings wrote
a serious song? Brother if you only knew...
Skankers - Our reaction to the "ska"
Bubby gubby bears - One of those songs that
improve when you add music. A lot of music.
- Why we don't have real jobs. Wah!
- A tribute to our only award...the 3 penguins award!
We're also working into our repeterwa- repetw- repita- repetoire a few
*gasp* cover songs! noooooo! Sell-outs!!! Ashley, we like these songs,
and they're easy. Woops, should I say that?
What I got - Sublime
Dammit (Growing up) - Blink 182
No, we don't have any official releases. What we do have are tons
of tapes lying around, half of which we don't know about. That's just cause
we like to record ourselves whenever we get together, no reason, we just
like to. Anyway, right now, we have a few recordings which we'll consider
as unofficial releases. If you're interested in getting your hands on any
of these, free + tape and postage, give us an email at email@example.com.
Three Penguins - A close to full length collection of songs, all
recorded during our first two rehearsals, which, ironically, were probably
our two best rehearsals. This is the quintessential Q and the Brass Boys
collection. Included are:
On the Inside
Robots that disguise Themselves as humans
Love and Lies
Robots that disguise themselves as humans (mamafuzz '97)
Galactic Boy (Gotta love remix) - Kaup once showed up at our house
at 7 in the morning. Eleven hours later we had a work of art and technology.
This is unlike anything else we've done so far, and could also probably
get us sued, since we sampled quite liberally. But the result is a cosmic
landscape of madness.
Q and the Brass Boys live - Technically live, though there wasn't
any audience. It's just Kaup on drums, Terry on guitar, and Eric on Trombone
and Trumpet. We turned the tape on and just started playing. A good tape
to listen to to understand the nuances of our band and its struggle to
find our sound. Not really, it's just us having fun. Included in our 20
minute medley are Galactic Boy, Robots, On the Inside, John Traver, Sweet
Home Alabama, Sugar Ray's Fly, Stick it to the Man, Aaron's Ballad, and
a reprise of Galactic Boy.
Martian King stuff - We don't really have any of our Martian King
material recorded yet.
The band is on hiatus right now. Maybe we'll get together come summer. But till then, you can get our stuff at MP3.com, and wait for us to appear at your local public library. Wait, that's books. We're not books. Even though Mars is red (read). See, I explained that joke in case you didn't get it. People should do that more often, I suggest explaining a joke immediately after telling it. Example: Q: How can you tell a drummer is at the door? A: The knocking gets faster and faster YOU SEE MOST DRUMMERS ALWAYS SPEED UP WHEN THEY'RE PLAYING SO IT WOULD BE HUMOROUS TO REALIZE THE SAME THING WOULD HAPPEN WHEN HE'S KNOCKING AT THE DOOR. OR SHE.
